Developed News Story of Pakistani Honest Taxi-Cab Driver in the UK safely kept the bag with him and waited for the owner to come

I got another taxi to go back to the taxi rank where I found this man (Muhammad Nisar) sitting in his car with the bag safely on the passenger seat

“I was coming back after cashing a cheque of 10,000 pounds of my inheritance, following the death of my mother. I took a cab to Walsall Train Station and after reaching the destination, I hopped out of the vehicle in a rush, forgetting the bag that contained the cash. I was walking across the car park when I realized I hadn’t got my bag and I panicked. I tried to flag down another taxi but they all had fared. I didn’t know what to do and losing the bag would have been the end of my business. We have built it up from nothing for the last nine years and we are sole traders. We don’t have the backing of banks. It is hard work, but it earns us a living. I was really worried and almost had a heart attack. I got another taxi to go back to the taxi rank where I found this man (Muhammad Nisar) sitting in his car with the bag safely on the passenger seat. I asked if he knows what was in that bag. Put it this way, it is not a box of sandwiches or a newspaper. There is £10,000 in there.”

Muhammad Nisar, a Pakistani driving cab in the UK for about 15 years. safely kept the bag with him and waited for the owner to come to the taxi rank where he could find him.

He said, “This is not the first time that something like this has happened. People have forgotten their mobiles, cash, and wallets before and I have always returned them because at the end of the day honesty is the best policy. There are some drivers who don’t return things but what is the point? If the council had not called me and no one had claimed it after 12 or 24 hours I would have taken that bag straight to the police station.”
